Precision Plunger Routers
We received our first shipment of Triton Precision Plunge Routers. These are the very same routers we use here in our shop. People have asked and now we can make available to you the very same.
These are hard to find routers so don’t wait too long to get yours. Couple this router with our Katana Core Box big shank router bits and you have the perfect Flute Blank making machine. If you have questions reach out by phone or email.
NEW to Jacksonholetim.com! We have added to our list of tools that we now carry for sale is the Triton Precision Plunge Router. This is the very same router we use here in our shop with our jigs. For those who want to craft their flutes from start to finish this is the one tool you will need to add to your shop.
We have several of these routers in our shop and some are 10 years old and work as good as the day we purchased them. Couple this machine with some of our CORE BOX Router Bits and you have all the making for a flute makers shop!
ROUTER JIGS FOR FLUTE MAKERS
In the coming weeks we will introduce to those of you who want to set up shop with one of our custom designed Router Jigs. For more than 20 years I have tried many designs and the ones we use now in our shop are just simple easy and accurate to use. With one of our jigs you will be able to route 3/4″, 7/8″, 1″ and 1 1/8″ flute bores all in the same jig.
Buy your flute blank stock in lumber form, billets, or pre-cut billet halves. If you have an accurate table saw or small drum sander you can make your own blank stock or buy for our coming inventory of halved billet stock.
It is worth mentioning again that we are one of the few small specialty wood suppliers that focus on Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Port Orford Cedar and Sitka Spruce. Our Alaskan Cedar boards are the BEST Mother Nature has been able to grow. We spec out ONLY instrument grade lumber and pay a premium to bring in large hand selected bunks of timber. All of our lumber comes in width of 10 -12 inches and boards as long as 16+ feet. No order is too small so order a single board or an entire truck load… we can help you get what you need.
If you have interest in talking about a jig or sourcing your own lumber reach out via email to “firstname.lastname@example.org”. In the meantime our first shipment of routers are on the way. These routers can be difficult to find and our last order for a single router just got here and we ordered it in October 2020.

I continue to get questions as to what router bits I use to craft the flute blanks. So I have added back to our menus the bits that I carry and sell. I have used this line of router bits for years now and really like them. They last long, cut well and stay sharp.
You can order Online a limited line of the bits I use daily. They are worth the investment. Quality tools make ALL the difference. If we can help let us know how.
I thought I would share a quick post about a project I started over a week ago. I have been wanting to build a new table for the shop that would be just right for flute building as well as cutting hides . I am all of 6-4 and a lot of my height is in my midsection. So bending over low tables gets old quick.
This table is almost complete as it is sanded and ready for finish and stains. It measures about 5 feet deep by 7 1/2 feet long and stands counter height. Casters make it easy to maneuver when needed and the shelf underneath give ample storage of excess lumber and such. Solid as a rock and will soon feature a new wood vise as well. This will give the extra surface I need without having to bend over all the time.
The second addition of late is this new band saw from Jet. Also on a set of casters this heavy band saw is easy to move around when needed. This machine will be used mostly for small resaw project and fetish crafting.
Next on the list will be a new helical planer and jointer probably from Powermatic. Time to replace and upgrade some of my power equipment.
Coming soon is some new lumber that I am trying to acquire out of Colorado. My favorite stash of urban harvest lumber provides truth old growth trees that were planted around the time of the Oregon Trail when pioneers headed west. As they age or get crushed by urban sprawl one guy has made it his mission to harvest these valuable trees. Watch for more posts about what we find.
Finally I have will cutting and offering some new blank designs that will feature end caps. This has not been my normal path because I do not turn my flutes on a lathe, however some of the flute builders that shop our blanks have ask for them. Some of the first selected woods should land in my shop any day. Watch for future post alerts on these new blanks.
As always reach out with questions… I am hear to help!
